Blog Action Day: Poverty

Today, October 15, is Blog Action Day, and the theme this year is on Poverty. A quote from the Blog Action Day website itself:

"Blog Action Day is an annual nonprofit event that aims to unite the world’s bloggers, podcasters and videocasters, to post about the same issue on the same day (TODAY!). The aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion. Global issues like poverty are extremely complex. There is no simple, clear answer. By asking thousands of different people to give their viewpoints & opinions, Blog Action Day creates an extraordinary lens through which to view these issues."

Well in our country. We host quite a number of events to help raise fund for needy people and for the people suffering from poverty.

Example: The 30 Hour Famine. This is a meaningful event where participants will fast for 30 hours and also raise funds to help the people suffering from poverty. Kenny Sia Dawn Yang Xia Xue Steven Lim John Chow 5XMom Edison Chen Scandal
